Royal Opera productions present three of Giacomo Puccini’s greatest operas. John Copley’s iconic La bohème brings the Paris of the 1830s to life in vivid detail; Jonathan Kent’s atmospheric and naturalistic Tosca evokes the turbulence of Rome in 1800; and Andrei Serban’s visually stunning Turandot is a glorious tribute to Puccini’s last and grandest creation. Featuring a host of international opera stars, this collection is brimming with the drama and sumptuous music that have made Puccini one of the world’s most popular opera composers. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true Surround Sound. ‘‘Lise Lindstrom is pretty much the ideal Ice Princess.’’ (BBC Music Magazine - Turandot) ‘‘Andris Nelsons conducts a well-paced performance.’’ (Gramophone - La bohème)
